Thanks for a lively discourse on the thread I started ;)

This is what I wished to hear to consider continuing to write my own 
or using a specific platform.

I currently write in whatever I can quickly get the job done, not 
projecting long term maintainability; but its a trade off between 
quick short term gain now or learning a platform because of its 
reputation, a reputation I have to take on faith.

Some comments on the thread:

Open source versus commercial: why pick?  Use what works.

Joshua Bell: playing in the subway is the wrong place in most places, 
particularly rush hour.  Folks are rushing getting from a to B.


Chuck, on the side, did your issues with Prologix GPIB adapter 
resolve using Linux?
